USMLEWorld UWorld Offline versus Online

Would it make much difference if I study uworld offline instead of online?
or no difference?? HELPPPPPP....I know the timing is the difference but what about in term of knowledge? no right? i am a poor dude.
So I try to keep things as cheap as I could afford.

If you are poor then how come you have thousands of $$$ to go for the USMLE path into residency in USA!!!

You should not do USMLE World offline for the following reasons:

1) It's outdated and they have changed many of the questions since the most recent offline version.
2) It's illegal and considered a crime in the United States which is the country where you want to build your future in.
3) It has no means of assessing your performance and it does not compare you to other UW takers.
4) If you want to do offline then online, then you will ruin you online USMLE World as many concepts are repeated but in a different style and so this renders your practice invalid.
5) You cannot do timed blocks and this is very important to have adequate practice for the exam.
6) You cannot do subject-wise questions and so you miss the opportunity of hitting on your weak subjects.

The biggest advantage of doing uWorld online is that the questions are UPDATED. If you need to cut costs down maybe you can get a 1 month subscription which you can start answering 5-6weeks before your actual exam then use the last 1-2 weeks before your exam to review notes/ previously annotated reviewers.

Default Make a donation

It is expensive to keep renewing. Best bet is to buy A 1 year subscription.

Def pay online... Even if you do it offline pay the minimum 1 month or donate. Those qs are MONEY for the exams! Step 1 2ck AND 3! If they don't get paid they will stop supporting new qs and such.
